Barb Mundis recieved an inexpensive 6-string guitar for her 15th birthday. She bought a guitar chord book and learned to play a few chords. When she met Jay, he taught her to play the guitar (bluegrass style) and later the upright bass. When the band Gospel Grass (later known as Cabin Creek) was formed Jay was playing bass with Barb on the guitar but Jay felt his vocals would be easier if he played the guitar, so he then taught Barb to play the upright bass. Now switching to electric bass Barb began playing bluegrass music. Barb has played for Cashers Flat (formerly known as Fiddle-For-Fun) . She is now able to switch from electric to upright bass as needed. She writes a lot of her own songs most of them are gospel or songs with meaning. Her favorite song is called " A Way of Life" and is requested at many performances.
